of his Mumford graduating
class, Larry captained the tennis
team and edited the school's
literary publication. He was also
a member of the school or-
chestra.
Shelly says her home always
had a Jewish National Fund
Blue Box. Her mother, Lillian
Komer, contributed to the In-
fants Service Group and Hadas-
sah, while her father, Harry
Komer, was a member of B'nai
B'rith, the Masons, and was an
active real estate entrepreneur
who owned and managed the
Berkley Theater in addition to
other properties.
"Shelly won the Fresh Air
Society's Outstanding Personal-
ity Award as an eight-year-old
camper," informs Lillian Komer.
Her daughter was also a cheer-
leader at Mumford High School,
- and received a special Detroit
Police Department commenda-
tion bestowed on area students
for academic excellence and
community service. Involvement
with the Teen Democrats and
later, the Young Democrats, in-
troduced Shelly to some of the
vicissitudes of American politics.
But at college, she elected to
pursue a degree in languages,
believing the law school cur-
riculum would be too tough.
The couple met at a Univer-
sity of Michigan freshman
mixer. Diane Klein, current
president of the Greater Detroit
Chapter of Hadassah, asked
'- dormmate Shelly Komer if she
wanted to meet a nice young
man she knew.
After what Shelly laughingly
calls "an undramatic first meet-
ing," their relationship blos-
somed. Meanwhile, Larry an
honors political science major,
was selected to fulfill an intern-
ship at the State Department in
Washington, D.C. under the
; supervision of Secretary of State
George Ball. His assignment
was the Cyprus desk.
"In 1963," recounts Shelly,
"Cyprus and Turkey were war-
ring." She says the experience
was instrumental in opening
Larry's eyes to peripheral prob-
lems in the Middle East and de-
veloping a great deal of political
consciousness.
That year, Larry also made a
/ visit to the Dachau concentra-
tion camp, an experience he
says affected him profoundly.
"I remember him saying when
he returned, ' "Mother, I think I
finally understand some of what
you and Dad are trying to ac-
• complish," recalls Edythe Jac-
kier.
But several years would pass
before either Shelly or Larry
would emulate their parents'
examples.
Larry was a second-year Yale
University law student when he
\_. and Shelly married in 1965.
Shelly taught French and
Spanish in New Haven until her
husband's graduation. They
then moved to Wilmongton, Del.
for one year, where Larry
clerked for a federal district
judge.
